Default Regular Season Mode is ON!

Just an FYI to folks... With training camp starting this week, we are moving the forum to regular season mode. This means Broncos & NFL related topics in the main forum, with Off Topics being posted in their appropriate forums.

With Kaylore and SoCal's training camp reports being posted here, the traffic to the site is very likely to increase to the point that the server could be overwhelmed. Shutting off avatars can help save bandwidth so maybe that won't happen. It's a small thing that just might keep the Mane accessible...

I'd rather see the sigs go.....but that's just me I guess

and why is such foolishness like the Omane awards allowed to remain stickied on the main board?

I second that ... Avatars are more important than sigs. Sigs kinda get in the way of a thread's reading flow, a little bit.

I've got another idea on how to increase server space/performance.......

Get rid of that worthless "Neck Pony Nation" thread.....how many replies now? 12,000?

"How's your day?"
"Great! How's yours?"
"Bump....wheee !"
"Oh, this thread is WAY to low....BUMP....wheee!!"

Good... I am all for turning everything off if it speeds up the server.

Thanks.

The only time I've ever noticed slow servers is during the heavy traffic that goes with gamedays. Otherwise, it seems to run fine for me.

Glad to hear on-season mode is here though. Can't wait for September.

Just a note... There will be a few exceptions as always, including "General" threads dedicated to other popular sports. "General MLB," and "General NCAA Football" come to mind...

Just an FYI, the description still reads off season mode. Just thought it might throw off newbies and stuff. I am SO glad the season is just about here!!
